International Climbers’ Festival, July 8-12 in Lander, WY

About the International Climbers’ Festival

The International Climbers’ Festival in Lander, Wyoming, has been a fixture in the climbing world for over 20¬†years and stands as¬†the longest running climbing festival ever. Since 1993, this¬†grassroots festival¬†‚ÄĒwelcoming climbers from all over the globe‚ÄĒhas continued to rally the climbing¬†community together, for an incredible¬†summer celebration of climbing, music, and of course, tasty beer. 2015¬†marks the¬†22nd year of this unforgettable event, and will take place from¬†July 8-12.
International Climbers' Festival

At first, Lander might not strike you as a¬†prime climbing destination¬†to put on your summer map, but you’ll be delightfully surprised by the seemingly endless high quality¬†rock,¬†abundant sun, and kind people that make Lander¬†a truly special place. If the sandstone and limestone cliffs of Sinks Canyon or Wild Iris don’t call to you, then the granite boulders or alpine¬†peaks in the Wind River Range surely will.

While the Lander climbing areas have¬†grown over the years‚ÄĒthe passion and unique climber-friendly feel of this small Wyoming town are what continue to make it a must-stop for climbers of all backgrounds and skill sets. Lander not only offers free camping and a diverse offering of rock-type for all styles of climbing, but it is also home¬†to¬†The Lander Bar/Gannett Grill ‚ÄĒconsidered to be the best climber bar in all of the world.


What to expect

At this¬†year’s International Climbers’ Festival,¬†you can expect to find an eclectic and jam-packed schedule¬†of clinics, competitions, and gatherings‚ÄĒincluding dyno comps, crag breakfasts, brewery tours, art crawls, and so much more. Plus, you’ll get a chance to catch up and maybe even climb on some of the best rock in the country, with incredibly inspiring climbers …
